Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

Kenneth K. Kao, MD
Hawaii Permanente Medical Group
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon

Dr. Kenneth Kao’s inspiration to specialize in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery came to him during his training as a general surgeon at the University of California, Los Angeles. He witnessed the impact that congenital defects, cancer or trauma could have on patients, and while working with breast cancer survivors, he learned that quality of life could be as important as quantity of life. He ultimately completed his plastic surgery training at UCLA and learned how procedures such as breast reconstruction after mastectomy, can help restore one’s identity.

One of Dr. Kao’s favorite sayings is “form follows function”, and he feels that plastic surgery exemplifies this by integrating reconstructive and aesthetic principles. He utilizes a balanced approach towards body and facial cosmetic surgery, making sure to understand his patients’ goals, while adhering to the highest standards of safety.
